Volkswagen ID.3 GTX 2024: the “electric GTI” that was missing from the range

We already anticipated that with the update of the Volkswagen ID.3 there would also be a more performance variant of the electric for those who did not conform. The German firm already showed it previously, partially camouflaged while its production phase was carried out. And now the Volkswagen ID.3 GTX 2024, which is something similar to the Golf GTI of current times (until the arrival of this one). It is a compact electric sports car that wants to surprise with its features.

It should be noted that the ID.3 GTX is structured in two versions, with different power levels. The “basic” one develops 286 HP of power thanks to its rear engine, but then there is a Performance variant that reaches up to 326 hp. It is just the level of power that its twin brother, the Cupra Born VZ, has, while both maintain 545 Nm of torque. The most powerful boasts acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of 200 km/h.

In both versions of the Volkswagen ID.3 GTX the largest battery is mounted, which is the one that It has 84 kWh capacity (79 kWh net). Thanks to this element, this sporty and propulsion electric is capable of achieving a electric autonomy of up to 600 kilometers. Accepts fast direct current charging at 175 kW to go from 10 to 80% in 26 minutes. In addition, it presents a specific chassis tuning, which includes a sportier adaptive suspension.

On an aesthetic level The truth is that there are also some changes to distinguish itself from the rest of the range. The bumpers are typical of the GTX version and a new lighting signature stands out, with the arrow-shaped daytime running lights integrated into the lower part. As standard it comes 20 inch wheels and wider tires (215 mm), while the GTX signature appears at various points. That includes a sportier rear thanks, mainly, to being partially tinted in black and a more prominent diffuser.

The cabin of the Volkswagen ID.3 GTX 2024 also has certain sporting airs thanks to seats with mixed upholstery of recycled material and synthetic leather, with gray and black finishes, in addition to contrasting red stitching. HE maintain electronic elements of which it already boasted, such as the digital instrumentation or the 12.9-inch touch screen. The equipment is very outstanding and maintains practically everything available in this vehicle.

Happy drivers
